The EngD in Bioprocess Leadership offers the opportunity for doctoral studies which benefit from industrial and academic inputs of training and research expertise. Students normally resident in the UK/EU are able to benefit from research council funding from this EPSRC scheme. Sponsoring companies contribute additional funding towards the studentship and the research. Some examples of the novel research which has been made possible through this scheme are described in the case studies given below.
Master's programmes provide students with the opportunity to understand how advances in the life sciences can most effectively be translated into real outcomes of benefit to all. Close linkage of the Master's programmes with the research activities of the Advanced Centre for Biochemical Engineering (ACBE) ensures that lecture and case study examples are built around the very latest biological discoveries and bioprocessing technologies. A key aim is to generate an entrepreneurial spirit in all the students of the department. It also recognises the fact that the discovery of new products and processes by the UK bioindustry is increasingly driven by small, high-tech companies which are likely to become the major recruiters of biochemical engineers in the future.
BEng/MEng, plus an Extra-mural Year (EMY)
The three-year BEng an Engineering Council 'enhanced course'; the MEng degree programmes are four years in duration, containing enhanced and extended courses of advanced process design and Management topics. All degree courses can be taken with an EMY - an extra-mural year in industry.
